* "Butterflies are Free to Fly...."
Recently a friend of mine had eye surgery. She asked for healing color in advance. I didn't feel any color immediately. Then I walked toward my art room, I spied the Blue Butterfly painting hanging in the hallway.
I pictured indigo surrounding my friend. I pictured her in perfect health and wholeness.
The Out of the Blue butterfly logo painting was completed with one color on blank canvas. Variations in blues were achieved with heavier paint applications for the darks and dry brush (lighter touch on the brush) for the lights. Pure paint on pure canvas achieved the visual effects.
Later I called to inquire about my friend's post surgery progress without mentioning the color I had imagined. "I am seeing Indigo Blue all the time in front of my eyes and while resting! I feel I am bathed in Blue, and it it so peaceful."
The next evening in my art room, I picked up the book, Vibrational Medicine by Richard Gerber, M.D. I had not opened the book in years. It opened immediately to a chart that showed colors that may help areas of the body. Vision: Indigo Blue!
Another person mentioned that she used the visualization of multi-colored butterflies to aid her healing journeys.
"I picture many little butterflies lighting on me where I am hurting or injured. They work!"
